Well I see a candidate in Sudbury has caused a bit of a flap by calling for gays to be executed.
Police are investigating whether an independent federal candidate committed a hate crime by telling high school students homosexuals should be executed.
Oh good. That's nice to know. Sounds like a tough case. Although I was really happy to see that even if the kids kicked up a fuss....the Principal took it all in stride.
"We're here today to hear what the candidates have to say," he said in an interview. "As an inclusive school, we respect all other opinion although we may not agree with them — and I know there were definitely some things said today that we don't agree with."
And still hasn't decided whether he would welcome Popescu back.
As for the wingnut homophobe I'm just glad he was upfront with his motives.
"A young man asked me what I think of homosexual marriages and I said I think homosexuals should be executed," he said. "My whole reason for running is the Bible and the Bible couldn't be more clear on that point."
Because religious fanatics aren't usually that honest.
Call him what you will....but he's no mama's boy.
In 2003, Popescu was found guilty of assaulting his mother and his sentence included three years of probation where he’s can't visit her alone.
Because family values are important. Eh? And at least now we know what's going to happen to gays and women when Harper and his theocons win a majority.
And why they hate the Human Rights Commissions so much.
Which reminds me how happy I was to read this morning that Canadians ARE worried about a Harper majority.
Even if they're not prepared to do anything about it.
More than half of Canadian voters say they're worried about the thought of giving Stephen Harper a majority government, but most wouldn't change their vote to prevent it.
Lazy....stoopid..... or what? Oh boy. That's a tough one. I give up.
Although I think I'm beginning to realize something. There's a reason Canada didn't own the 20th century.
And as for this one?
Don't hold your breath....
